NHS website - Can my baby go swimming before or after vaccinations?
You can take your baby swimming at any age, both before and after they have been vaccinated. It doesn't matter if they haven't yet completed their course of vaccinations.
Babies sometimes experience side effects after a vaccination. These are generally quite mild and shouldn't stop you taking your baby swimming.
However, babies who are feverish or irritable in the days or weeks after a vaccination may not feel up to swimming for a few days, so you may prefer to wait.
